Festival: 2017

‘Apron Strings’ is an edited version of the ‘Pinnies from Heaven’ exhibition featuring the work of the 11 members of MaP plus Sirpa Morsky from Finland. The group have responded to the theme of aprons and have created their own contemporary ‘pinnies’ using a diverse range of textile techniques including hand and machine stitching, printing and laser cutting. Their initial appearance of sweet nostalgia hides underlying themes related to personal issues such as motherhood, depression and rites of passage. Workwear pinafores sit alongside historically inspired Elizabethan ruffs, suffragette dolls with political slogans on their aprons and subversive text details.
